According to the MindResearch.org, which developed ST Math, schools that used the program for one to two years saw significantly higher standardized test scores than schools in the same state who did not use ST Math. The data sample assessed 44,200 students in 15 different areas across the country.
For example, in Los Angeles, schools that used ST Math saw a 6.4 percent increase in test scores, while schools who did not use the program actually saw a decrease in test scores after two years. Schools in Washington, D.C. that used ST Math saw a 17.4 percent increase in test scores, while those who did not use the program only saw a 4.5 percent increase after one year. Schools in Chicago that used ST Math saw an 11.4 percent increase in test scores, while those that did not use the program only saw a 3.6 percent increase after two years.
